Secure WiFi – Fewer Logins! More Secure! Enroll Now!

Buffalo State has moved to a enrollment-based secure wireless network with a secure and persistent connection (your device will auto-login when you’re on campus).


Enroll Your Device on the Secure Wireless Network

To enroll your device now use one of the links below. When prompted, enter your Buffalo State network credentials and follow the on screen instructions. The entire process will take just a few minutes.





Advantages of the Secure Wireless Network

Enroll Once, Auto-Login Thereafter, Encrypted Communication


The secure network has a number of advantages over BengalOpen16:


  • Faculty, staff and students only need to enroll their devices once per year.
  • Enrolled devices will auto-login to the secure network when on campus.
  • Wireless communication over the secure network is encrypted.


When connected to BengalOpen16, wireless traffic is not encrypted and you must re-login each time your connection times out (typically after 15 minutes of inactivity).


Secure Wireless Use Policy

  • Faculty, staff and students can enroll up to five (5) devices (laptops, tablets, and smart phones) on the secure network. Gaming devices and short term loaned school devices are not permitted.
  • Faculty, staff and students are liable for any device enrolled on the secure wireless network. If your device is used inappropriately by another person after being loaned, sold, lost or stolen, you may be held responsible. If your device is lost or stolen, you should report it to the proper authorities immediately (and inform the IT Help Desk).
  • Buffalo State's networks (both wired or wireless) may not be used to upload, download or share any materials or content that violate or infringe on the rights or dignity of others. If it is determined that a device registered to you has been involved in a copyright violation, you will receive a "Copyright Infringement Complaint" and your wireless privileges may be revoked.
  • The use of Buffalo State's secure wireless network should conform to the campus Policy on the Use of Electronic Resources.
